I'm assuming you mean slipping...sounds to me that you need a transmission rebuild clutches are worn

Will drop down a geer or two while driving and then go back to the proper gear

Sounds like a transmission malfunction either mechanical or electrical. Try to check the transmission fluid level while in Park and idling, and top off with the proper fluid indicated on the dipstick.

\'93 Hyundai Lantra, automatic transmission has trouble changing up from 1st to 2nd, it tends to rev on a bit, clunks once or twice before changing to 2nd, other gears seem to be ok. Oil levels are ok and have recently replaced the transmission oil (yes the correct oil was used)

Transmission shifts hard from first gear to second gear all other gears shifts ok.

Well, if you don't have a shift kit, then this is a sign of damage. Have your local shop check it and see if it can be adjusted.

Spradic problem

Try to have the mechanic look for "downshift kickdown" service info. When you are driving and the cars computer senses a load that is beyond the limit of the present gear, the car will downshift into a lower gear to match the load.
The inbetween gear time is when the RPM rises because the gears want to change and the transmission has not caught up with the engine.
Some of this can be adjusted with the hydraulic pressure in the transmission. The torque converter supplies the pressure and the rebuilt trans needs to be matched with the torque converter.
Go back to the trans shop.

Transmission does not shift into 3rd and/or overdrive

Well, you could try changing the speed sensor, or modulator valve, which ever that model has. And change the filter and fluid. If it's plugged many of the problems you describe could occur. Good luck.

1993 lincoln mk v111-how do i change the timing belt>>

you have the same engine as a 96+ 4.6L Cobra (well 95% the same).
Are you trying to change the engine timing? You cant, its processor-controlled. There's no distributor so nothing to move there either.
To beef it up, get a new processor from someone that advertizes on the Mark VIII forums (NOT a chip kit that only works on wide-open throttle). Use AWSFA-12C Motorcraft spark plugs (they DO exist, make your dealer look up the part number), and get ACCEL coils. Nology wires if you can afford them. Get "Jerry's Mad" done to your transmission, and a high-stall converter (2700), and a cold air box, and a 160 degree thermostat. Underdrive pulleys from STEEDA (just use the crank and water pump pulley)
My car has all this and does 12.10 in the 1/4 mile with tools in the trunk and a full tank of gas!
Do the transmission mod anyways, or at LEAST change the fluid to full synthetic (MERCON 5). If you dont, it WILL burn out soon, very soon. Mine did and they arent cheap...and transmission shops dont know how to fix them.
